    Abstract

    Active environmental water management occurs whenever environmental water managers have some discretion or choice about the use of environmental water. Whenever these decisions are made, they need to be aimed at achieving the greatest environmental benefit for the environmental water to be used and contributing to the achievement of local river and wetland management objectives. This chapter outlines the policy principles and frameworks required to make these decisions in ways that provide confidence they represent the highest value environmental use, achieve good environmental outcomes, stand up to external scrutiny, and increase community confidence in environmental water management institutions.
